2014 guard Brandone Francis continues to pick up offers
Brandone Francis is arguably the hottest recruit in the country -- but he doesn't want to drag out the decision process.
Entering the spring evaluation period, Brandone Francis had some buzz but wasn’t a household name by any stretch. After winning MVP honors at the Adidas Exclusive run in Dallas in April, though, Francis became one of the hottest recruits in the country.
The 6-foot-5 guard vaulted to five-star status in the 247 Sports rankings, and his recruitment reflected the rise.
Florida, Cincinnati, Connecticut and Florida State are coming at him the hardest.
“Not any top five, nothing like it yet,” Francis said. “I think all those schools are great, man. It’s a blessing to have offers from the schools that I mentioned.”
Francis is enjoying the new attention, but he doesn’t want to drag out the process too long. He has already visited Florida, taking a trip to Gainesville for an unofficial visit to watch a game during the season.
“It was good,” Francis said. “Good campus, great basketball program.”
The Gators are thought by many to be the favorite for Francis, although he says there’s no leader at this point. Florida was on Francis earlier than most, and the Gators have the advantage of being in the state.
The Arlington Country Day (Fla.) product will have a decision finalized by the end of the summer.
“I will commit soon,” Francis said. “I can’t tell you where I’m going. I’m thinking about the situation, and see who else is going to offer me.”
